September 7, 2019 - February 2, 2020

Mitch Lyons was a well-known and important part of the local art community, who over the past five decades developed a truly innovative form of print-making. Lyons received his undergraduate degree in graphic design from the Philadelphia College of Art (now the University of the Arts) and continued his studies at Tyler School of Art where he received a Master of Fine Arts degree in ceramics in 1971. Lyons worked as a traditional potter until 1980, the pivotal point in his career when he refined his method of printing directly from clay. Like most traditional potters, Lyons was motivated by a love for the material and described himself as a “clay person making prints.” However, instead of firing the clay to a permanent state, Lyons captured a lasting two-dimensional image of the clay’s surface. This exhibition surveys the developments and experimentations in Lyons’ 50-year-long journey to inventing the clay monoprint.

The video displayed at the Exhibit was produced though SAI’s Museum Video Program.

The Lopers are among the most celebrated of Delaware’s visual fine artists. Their styles, though different, are distinct for their approach to form and color and show the acknowledgment of modernist traditions from the turn of the 20th century. 

The exhibit will include a video featuring Edward Loper Jr., which is the first video produced under the Senior Artists Initiative Museum Video Project.

At the Brandywine Museum


In September 2019, the Brandywine River Museum of Art will present an exhibition of the Halloween-themed paintings of renowned Philadelphia artist Peter Paone (born 1936).  Halloween has long been a subject of fascination for the artist, and in the last decade he has produced a series of works devoted to the theme. Richly painted in jewel tones and textured surfaces, these works give visual form to his view of Halloween as a “day of denial,” one in which people have the freedom to adopt different personas that often reflect their inner desires. Paone creates paintings of extravagantly costumed figures whose mask-like expressions create an unsettling mood.

Peter Paone is an SAI Senior Artist. His resume, gallery, and video

can be accessed here.
